EAGLE a family affair for eight decades

Co-Publisher Rita Vasilyev takes a look back at her family’s involvement with The Oxford EAGLE from the day her mother, Nina Goolsby, walked into the paper office in 1942 through these final days before the Goolsby/Vasilyev and Phillips family transfers ownership of the paper to Boone Newspapers.
